According to local news reports, a New Jersey man had contracted the disease and was admitted to a Ewing Township hospital for treatment on April 22nd, 2011, but the case was not reported to the local health department – as mandated by state law – until two weeks later, on May 5th. Health officials of the township reported the case to the state on May 6th. Ewing Township is responsible for further investigation of Legionnaires’ disease cases and must report its findings to the state. Samples from the hot tub of a local hotel were taken on May 9th and sent to a private lab, which will conduct tests to determine whether this hot tub was the source of the legionella. Test results will come back in two weeks.
